She was the matriarch of the family farm and also was a cashier at Super Valu in Beaver Dam and Pick-n-Save in Watertown.

The family would like to thank the staff at Hillside Manor for the kind and loving care given to Aunt Gert.

If desired, memorials may be made in Gertrude’s name to St. Katharine Drexel Parish Center Fund, 408 South Spring Street, Beaver Dam, WI  53916.
